Hi everyone, I've been wondering about Neeva and how it will go in the world of search. I'm hearing that Apple will use it as their search engine of choice.... Lots of possibilities

That sounds highly unlikely to me. Why would Apple want to use a paid search engine? Why would anybody? And it's not even actually new: it's based on Bing Search.

For those who don't know what it is:


Neeva is an ad-free search engine that requires a subscription to use. It can be linked to personal accounts like Microsoft Office, Dropbox, or Google. Outside of just searching the web, users are also able to search their personal documents such as emails, presentations, and more.

The search engine is not being built from the ground up and will rely on Bing search results. It will also pull in data from different sources such as weather.com, Apple Maps, and Intrinio stocks.

I'd be surprised if this lasts a year....

Not a chance. A paid, ad free search engine? I am highly skeptical this will take off.

If anything, Apple Spotlight will integrate with DuckDuckGo who's Map platform they already power. DuckDuckGo services 80m queries a day and is quickly growing. They've done the hard work of building the indexer, just needs more traffic now and 1 BD or CD move from Apple will change the game.
